I’ve had a major think for anything floral lately.  This jacket is older but I linked some really cute blazers above that I’m loving.  The blazer from Banana Republic is seriously the perfect for spring and is currently in my online shopping cart.

I bought this sweater a couple weeks ago and have been living in it.  I love the detail and fringe, it’s so perfect for spring!  I’ve been such a sucker for neutrals lately, they’re so fresh and easy to wear.  I’m so happy it’s spring and warming up a little around here.  Hope you had a great Easter weekend and are off to a good week!  Thanks for stopping by…

Going Green

We had a fun weekend celebrating Billy’s 9th birthday mixed in with a little St. Patricks Day celebration.  We tried to convince Billy that they dyed the river green for him since it’s his favorite color but I don’t think he cared what the reason was, he thought it was pretty great.  Downtown Chicago is one of my favorite places, I don’t think you can run out of new places to explore, there’s so much to do!  I love that the weather is warming up and we can get outside and explore this new place we call home.

While we were downtown we went to The Doughnut Vault.  Billy’s obsessed with donuts and is determined to try all the donut shops in Chicago, it’s going to take a while!  We’ve heard that The Doughnut Vault has the best donuts in Chicago so we thought we’d give it a go.  The line was long, super long, like wrapped around the block long but we were determined to try it and see if it lives up to the hype.  They didn’t disappoint, they were delish!  So if you’re in Chicago and craving donuts look them up and try them out.  We also love Stan’s Donuts and I think Firecakes Donuts is my favorite but they have an ice cream donut so that’s almost cheating!  Do-Rite Donuts will be our next donut stop.

I’ve linked what we’re all wearing here…

My Outfit– Sweatshirt is older from J.Crew but I love this one —  Gap Jeans (they’re the same jeans I posted on Instagram, I’m obsessed with them!)  —  New Balance Kicks  —  Karen Walker Sunglasses  —  Kate Spade Earrings  —  Bracelets  —  Fur Pom Poms on my bag

On Elle–  Similar Sweater  —  Gap Jeans  —  Converse  —  Vera Bradley Crossbody Bag

On Billy–  Sweatshirt  —  Jeans (he loves these because of the stretch, he says he can still run and jump in them which is top priority!)  —  Nike Shoes

On Tommy–  North Face Jacket  —  Nike T-Shirt  —  Gap Jeans (the same pair he’s trying on that I posted on Instagram)  —  Vans

On Joel–  Sweatshirt  —  Banana Republic Traveler Jeans (he’s like Billy and loves the stretch, he can run and jump in these too)   —  New Balance 574  —  Dolce & Gabbana Sunglasses 

 

 

Spring Shoes with Neiman Marcus

I was invited to Neiman Marcus last week for their Spring Shoe Bash.  Jennifer Worman of Red Soles & Red Wine hosted the event and it was such a blast!  The shoes were gorgeous, the desserts were not only super cute but super tasty too, and the company was a blast! I had so much fun walking around checking out all the gorgeous shoes, trying some on, and meeting some great ladies.

IMG_1611Don’t these desserts looks delish!  IMG_1498 (1)

The Christian Louboutin table took my breath away, I mean look at all those beauties!  The lip heels, bright neon, the floral heels, and the blue heels were so perfect for spring.IMG_1499 (1)And look at all these Valentino’s!   I live in flats throughout the day and oh how I wish I owned a pair of these.  I loved these ballerina flats and love the color and style of these rockstud caged ballerina flats.IMG_1497 (1)

The Manolo Blahnik heels were stunning!  I wish I would have taken a closer pic of the display behind these heels, it was dreamy!  These floral heels were so pretty.  I’m also obsessing over these fringe Aquazzura Tassel Sandals and I loved these ones too.  These pink Manolo’s are definitely on my wish list! IMG_1610Can we pause for a moment of silence…. Check out these coral Louboutins!  My feet were red and killing me from running around in heels all day but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try these on, I was in love!!!  They were one of my favorites from the night, aren’t they be perfect for Spring and Summer?  Love the color, love the height, love the style, love the red sole!  They’re perfection!IMG_1471

Thank you so much Neiman Marcus and Jennifer for such a fun night.

With Joel gone and my kids having such busy schedules I’m so ready for summer!  We’ll be going back West for part of the summer to visit family so I’ve been busy shopping for cute swimsuits and swim accessories instead of packing up my house.  I’m loving this bright suit from J.Crew!  Where’s your favorite place to get swimsuits?  I’m on the hunt for something with good coverage, as flattering as a suit can be, and cute of course!

Hope you’re all have a happy Friday.  I’m wearing my FAVORITE flats today and had to share them, I’ve been living in these lately.  They’re so comfortable and go with everything.  I have wide feet so not all flats feel great but these are perfect!  They come in a few different colors and I’m tempted to order more.

Hope you have a great weekend, thanks for stopping by!
